I just got my third Alembic, a 5-string Epic in bubinga. Or is it bocate? And it has a switch where there should be a pot. I have many questions that the build record would answer. But it plays great! ;)

The things I'd like to find out, other than if I can get a copy of the build sheet, is the type of top wood and if it was built with the AE-2 electronics with the Q switch it now has. My guesses are Flame Walnut and no respectively....

Here's the details from the build record:
98W11517 WLB5 Epic bass
top: Flame Walnut
accent: Maple pinstripe
neck: 5-piece Maple with Walnut pinstripes, 34" long scale
pickups: 2 Alembic MXY
controls: "Epic" volume, pan, bass, treble, mono output (obviously changed!)
birthday: May 8, 1998
originally made for: Global (Italy)
From the picture, it looks like the bass and treble controls were replaced with a filter and Q-switch kit. If you post a picture of the electronics cavity, I can confirm.

Thanks, Mica! Would this have been a factory or dealer mod?
